Meet the Staff




Clinical Coordinator

In addition to assisting our doctors with providing phenomenal patient care, I am also the Clinical Coordinator for our practice. Whether I’m helping to make sure our clinic operates efficiently or working one-on-one with our amazing patients to help them look and feel better, not a day goes by that I am not excited to come to work. My husband, Tommy, and I have two furry children – our dogs, Sadie and Mollie. When I have spare time, I love fishing, boating, gardening, camping and generally just doing anything outdoors, especially when the sun is shining.



Financial Coordinator

As our Financial Coordinator, I make sure our accounts receivables are in good order, and I do everything I can to ensure our patients are getting the most out of their insurance packages. I absolutely love my job because I am helping our patients receive the orthodontic care that they need and deserve. Paying for orthodontic care is never easy on a family, and I feel fortunate to be able to help make our patients’ lives less stressful. I really love working with our staff and doctors because they all care so much for the people who come to us for treatment. I have been married to my husband, Steve, for 40 years and counting. We have two daughters, who have given us 4 adorable grandchildren. We also have a dog and two adopted cats. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, watching the Food Network cooking shows,  watching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Devil Rays and especially going to my grandchildren's activities.



Scheduling Coordinator

As the Scheduling Coordinator, I work hard to schedule the most convenient appointment times for our patients’ busy lives.  In addition, I greet new and existing patients and answer incoming calls, among many other administrative responsibilities.  I also serve as the backup Treatment Coordinator. Like everyone else who works here, I love doing everything I can to provide our patients the most rewarding and caring orthodontic experience possible. Our patients are incredible! They are all so unique and fascinating, and I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful career. My daughter is the light of my life, and I love spending as much time as I can with her. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends and attending University of Florida games where my daughter attends college.


Insurance Coordinator

As the Insurance Coordinator, I verify insurance benefits for treatment, and perform all insurance related responsibilities, as well as assist with front desk responsibilities. I am a back up Treatment Coordinator and I am also a trained Orthodontic Assistant, so I am able to assist in handling emergencies for our patients. I am a former patient of the practice as a teenager and seeing my smile transformation impacted me personally. My favorite part of my job is being in a field that truly changes lives just as it did mine.  I love watching not only the physical transformation, but also the influx of confidence, self-esteem and pure joy in every patient.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have to beautiful daughters together.  I enjoy spending quality time with my family and serving in the youth and children's ministries at church.  I am always browsing Pinterest looking for new DIY home improvement projects!



Lab Technician

I have the awesome job of fabricating the orthodontic appliances that are going to help our patients receive the most beautiful smiles. We are in the business of giving our patients healthier and happier lives, and I am very fortunate to be a part of such a positive and beneficial experience that we provide to our family of patients. I have an amazing family at home, and it consists of my husband, and our two children who are both in college. My husband and I love to go riding on his Harley and traveling.  I also love to hang out at the beach, bake delicious food, and spend as much timeas I can with my family and friends.



Orthodontic Assistant

As one of our orthodontic assistants, I spend my days in our practice by helping our doctors provide our patients gorgeous and life-changing smiles. My favorite part of my job is building great relationships with the people in our chairs, and I love being a part of their incredible journey to a bright and beautiful new smile. Our doctors are great because they keep the atmosphere as laid back as possible, and they are always teaching us new things that help us be better at what we do for our patients. I have a wonderful husband and we now have a little boy that keeps us going all the time.  One of our favorite things to do is to spend the day on our boat relaxing and fishing. I also enjoy shopping and being with my family and friends.



Orthodontic Assistant

Every day, I get the opportunity to have a career where I am able to make amazing differences in people’s lives. Helping our doctors chairside with our patients, I’ve created so many incredible relationships with some of the most interesting and unique people. Everything we do here has the patient at the center, and when I see them smile after their treatment is complete, the reward is amazing! My son, Jack, and I love to spend time together at the beach and the pool!  I love to spend time with my family and friends but when I have my alone time, I love to shop and read!
